Water water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily. Apple malic acid in apple neutralizes uric acid and thus provides relief to the sufferers. You should consume one apple daily after a meal. Lime the citric acid found in lime is a solvent of the uric acid. The juice of half a lime squeezed into a glass of water should be taken twice daily. French bean juice another effective home remedy for gout is french beans juice. The healthy juice can be consumed twice everyday for treating gout or high uric acid. Celery seed this is a popular home remedy to lower uric acid levels in the body. Have celery seeds extract to get best results. Eat 1 teaspoon flex seeds after meal. Drink wheat grass juice in early morning.

I am 77 years recently diagnosed for a m d of both eyes. Wet type. What are the treatment available & how far it is successful?

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Mysore
Treatment options include one or more of the following 1. Intravitreal injections (bevacizumab, ranibizumab) 2. Photodynamic therapy 3. Laser photocoagulation of the new vessels success will be based on location, size and duration of disease. The closer to the fovea (most sensitive part of the retina) is is poorer will be the response to therapy. Bigger size and longer duration are also poor prognostic factors.

Take a flow of steam (of plain water only) over the forehead through a crescent steam inhaler, eight hourly and for pain take tablet paracetamol 650 mg and check your eye sight for refractive error and we also have to rule out sinusitis or migrane as the cause of headache after clinical examination.

I am 30 year old. My penis size is small and thin. Can I increase length and thickness without any side effect.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am 30 year old. My penis size is small and thin. Can I increase length and thickness without any side effect.
Most of the youth have misconceptions about penis size and sexual performance .They run after many tricks to increase the penis size! The average penis size of 8.8 cm (3.5 inches) when flaccid, whereas the penis size of 12.9 cm (5.1 inches) when erect Funnily a large number of men believe their penis is small and they cannot satisfy their partner. In fact almost 80- 90 % of women are happy with the penis size of their partner. The circumference or girth (you may say width) is 9 to 10 centimetres (3.5 to 3.9 inches) in flaccid stage. It is 12 cm in erected state (4.7 inches) Men who want surgery to increase the length of their penis should try non-invasive methods like penile traction devices or extenders first, and in some cases, even try therapy to make them feel more confident about their bodies. There is no proven scientific method to increase size, girth or grip of penis although many false claims have been propagated by advertisements. The size is determined by an individual’s genetic build and length actually has no relation with sexual pleasure or satisfaction as many wrongly believe. Be happy with your individual qualities nature has bestowed on you. At present, there is no proof of any non-surgical technique that permanently increases either the thickness or length of a normal penis. Some general research has been done regarding the safety and efficacy (or lack thereof) of the ingredients of various pharmaceutical or quasi-pharmaceutical preparations, but thus far, nothing has emerged to cause mainstream medicine to adopt any of them. There are also risks inherent in some of the more invasive procedures, with negative outcomes ranging from the tearing of skin and scarring, to permanent loss of sexual function.

Symptoms usually begin with a sudden influenza-like stage characterized by feeling tired, fever, weakness, decreased appetite, muscular pain, joint pain, headache, and sore throat. The fever is usually higher than 38.3 °C (101 °F. This is often followed by vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Next, shortness of breath and chest pain may occur, along with swelling, headaches and confusion.[18] In about half of the cases, the skin may develop a r rash, a flat red area covered with small bumps, 5 to 7 days after symptoms begin.

Vitamin D: The Easily Available Sunshine Vitamin

MAMC, MRCPCH, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Noida
Vitamin D: The Easily Available Sunshine Vitamin

Vitamin D is a group of fat soluble nutrient that is an incredibly vital necessity for your body’s proper growth as it helps in the absorption of calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphate and for multiple other biological reactions of our body.

Now the major issue about Vitamin D is that our dietary sources are inefficient to fulfil the Vitamin D requirements of our body since foods do not contain much of it. Sunlight is the only major natural source of Vitamin D for a human being. Our skin synthesizes the vitamin through complex organic reactions with the help of the UVB radiation of the sunlight.

How is Vitamin D deficiency harmful to your body?
The most important function of Vitamin D is to help the body absorb various other nutrients from our diet and incorporate it into our bones and other necessary parts. Thus, due to Vitamin D deficiency bones become weak, soft and brittle, and results in conditions such as Rickets and Osteomalacia. Recent researches have shown that Vitamin D deficiency is also linked to prostate, breast and colon cancer. Reducing the inorganic mineral content of our body Vitamin D deficiency takes a severe toll on the body from childhood.

How to combat the deficiency among Indians?
Vitamin D deficiency is now an epidemic in the South Asian countries, and India is no exception. About 65-70% Indians are vitamin D deficient despite the abundant sunlight they receive. It is essential to understand the contributing factors that lead to this situation to remedy the problem.

Ignorance
The first and primary issue is that Indians are reluctant to go out into the sun. From households to professionals, everyone prefers to stay away from the only major source of Vitamin D, and even when they go out, they cover up themselves. Lack of knowledge and fear of getting their skin tone darker seem to be some of the nastiest causes that keep the everyone under the shade. Along with these problems, use of sunscreens and completely vegetarian diets are also responsible for the epidemic.

Melanin composition
A majority of Indians have a darker skin tone, which means the melanin content of their skin is comparatively much higher. Melanin prevents the formation of Vitamin D from sunlight. As a result, the Indians need much-extended exposure to sunlight which they do not get.

Obesity
Obesity in Indians is another primary issue that causes the excess fat in the body to soak up the necessary Vitamin D of the body, causing its deficiency.

Learning from the stated causes we see that the only ways to prevent this disease are, much more exposure to sunlight, consuming Vitamin D rich diets and obviously fighting obesity. In cases where the deficiency is observed doctors would prescribe supplements to ensure proper functioning of the body. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

I had a lump on the left side of scrotum, which I identified 10 days back. After the identification that lump size slowly started decreasing and within 4-5 days that lump vanished completely. So may I know what was the reason behind that lump and how come it automatically vanished. Now I feel suspicious whether the scrotum is same as before or not. Is this something I need to be worried about? Do I need to consult a doctor personally. Pls Suggest.

Hello- Sometimes the vessels supply blood to the testicles get exhausted due to over stimulation of the testes (due to masturbation or excessive sex, or due to infection), this results in the lump formation around scrotum. This lump dissolves itself with the suppression of the deficiency. If it is the first time thn it is ok but if it repeats in the future you must go for the intake of aphrodisiac medicines.

Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Hello doctor I am suffering from bad breathing /bad smelling of mouth. I am using sensodyne Colgate also used lysrine but no effect. So please tell me something.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too.
